Tailor's bunions

A tailor’s bunion is a prominent bony bump at the outside of the foot near the fifth toe. It is so called because it was a frequent ailment in the clothing industry. Many hours spent in a cross-legged position on hard floors whilst making clothes resulted in the development of this condition. When sitting cross-legged, the weight of the legs is placed on the contact points, such as the joint of the little toe. Over time the little toe started to bend inwards and bone to protrude outwards, often with a considerable degree of pain.

This condition becomes painful with shoes that have a narrow toe box.
